Not sure if this is the right place (let me know if not), but here is my question: I would like to infer (and potentially predict) the breakdown of operating, financing and investing cash flow of companies from the historical data in their balance sheets and income statements. Assume that cash flow statements are not available.

The reason being that some balance sheets and income statements are not detailed enough in breakdown of accounts (with only some sparse information in their footnotes). So, besides the accounting rules, what are some of the statistical modeling techniques that would be helpful in this case?
